STARS’ work­out tips

Want a mil­lion-dol­lar fig­ure? Dis­cover how these celebs keep in tip-top shape

Women's Weekly (Malaysia) - - Your Best Body Ever -

Prac­tis­ing yoga ev­ery day al­lows for men­tal calm­ness. — Denise Keller We would give any­thing to have Denise Keller’s sculpted physique. The model-host is part-lean, part-strong, and all gor­geous.

WORK­OUT ROU­TINE: This stun­ner is a reg­u­lar yoga devo­tee, say­ing that be­cause her work sched­ule can get pretty drawn out at times, she needs the calm­ness and clar­ity it pro­vides to keep her health in check.

DIET PLAN: Denise loves go­ing out for meals but fol­lows the 70/30 diet to keep her weight un­der con­trol. She eats 70 per cent veg­e­tar­ian and 30 per cent pro­tein in the form of eggs, fish, chicken, and legumes.

Run­ning has be­come an in­sep­a­ra­ble part of my life. — Sammi Cheng Pop diva Sammi Cheng has a body most women would die for. So what is the Can­topop queen’s slimfast se­cret?

WORK­OUT ROU­TINE: Sammi is an avid sportswoman and reg­u­larly goes for runs and jogs in her na­tive Hong Kong, which she also metic­u­lously doc­u­ments on her so­cial me­dia feeds. She says that by get­ting into the habit of run­ning in the morn­ing, she feels more en­er­gised and well pre­pared for a hard day of work.

DIET PLAN: A self-con­fessed food lover, Sammi main­tains her long, toned limbs with home­made veg­etable soups that she sips through­out the day to curb her hunger pangs.

Pay at­ten­tion to what your body needs to get the body that you want. — Kate Hud­son We’re al­most cer­tain Kate Hud­son has good genes to thank for her phe­nom­e­nal fig­ure, but the ac­tress doesn’t rely on DNA alone.

WORK­OUT ROU­TINE: Kate does Pi­lates for an hour, three times a week. If you think she gets some rest days in be­tween, think again. She does yoga or goes for a spin class on her off days. The ac­tress says pay­ing at­ten­tion to what your body needs is the key to fig­ur­ing out some short­cuts to the body that you want, with min­i­mal time com­mit­ment.

DIET PLAN: Kate is very par­tic­u­lar about what she puts into her body. She steers clear from pro­cessed, fried, and oily foods and sticks to a mostly al­ka­line-based diet.

Stay ac­tive even when you're sit­ting at an of­fice desk all day. — Mi­randa Kerr This for­mer Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret model boasts some en­vi­able curves and puts her hot bod down to good old hard work at the gym. WORK­OUT ROU­TINE: Mi­randa ex­er­cises three to four times a week for up to one and quar­ter hours each time. She warms up by stretch­ing be­fore tar­get­ing her legs, core and arms for a to­tal body work­out. She also stays ac­tive all day by clench­ing and tight­en­ing dif­fer­ent parts of her mus­cles in the car or on the way to the air­port. DIET PLAN: Veg­gies, veg­gies and more veg­gies. If it’s green, then you’ll find Mi­randa munch­ing down on it for break­fast, lunch and din­ner. She's not against the oc­ca­sional in­dul­gence, such as her grand­mother's pavlova, but in daily life she avoids su­gar as well as wheat.
